Event Details

STORGY was founded in 2013 by Tomek Dzido and Anthony Self as a means by which to explore the short story form and engage with readers and artists alike. An online literary short story magazine consisting of a core group of dedicated writers, STORGY aims to inspire artistic collaboration and provide opportunities for creative minds to meet.

Greetings, vault dwellers! Welcome to STORGY’s annual short story competition – last year we delved into the macabre sinister town of Shallow Creek, and this year we’re looking at the Annihilation of the world. So get your hazmat suits at the ready, because we’re switching on the Geiger counters and getting locked and loaded for whatever mutated abomination scuttles towards our fortified base!

We’re looking to put together an anthology consisting of the best irradiated stories involving the Annihilation of the world. Think Mad Max, The Road, The Book of Eli, Snowpiercer, World War Z, I Am Legend, The Hunger Games, Stake Land, 12 Monkeys and Escape from New York all rolled into one gigantic apocalyptic burrito. We’ll be looking to slice the anthology into THREE sections: BEGINNING, DURING and AFTER. We’re looking for original stories that inspire YOU based on the genre of Annihilation, but don’t think we’re just looking for bleak, melodramatic stories. Oh no! Let’s see those comedic chops in action, or how about a love story set in the irradiated wastelands? Have a fast paced thriller you’ve been saving for such an occasion? Let us know! The decision is up you, my fellow wastelanders!
